Ludovico Einaudi - Una Mattina Full !!TOP!! ALBUM



Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi writes and performs original compositions that are difficult to classify. He has been grouped with the minimalists, but has rejected that label, and in fact the experience of hearing his music is quite different from that of listening to Philip Glass. Einaudi (who sometimes goes by that single name, but not here) has been extraordinarily popular in Europe, and his CDs have been finding U.S. distribution as well; Una Mattina (One Morning), originally released in 2004, is a good introduction to his style. With the minimalists it shares an extreme economy of language, but that economy is applied to pop gestures rather than to basic musical materials. It's as if Glass or Reich had set out to make a minimalist-pop album -- and then decided to shop it to one of the new age labels: the mood is consistently and almost unchangingly meditative. But there is none of the virtuoso improvisation of pianists like George Winston; the musical language is kept tightly reined in, so that a small shift in harmony, say, takes on the weight of a major musical event. Sample Resta con me (Stay with Me), track 3, to get the flavor of the whole; it seems as though it's going to evolve into a pop piano instrumental, but it doesn't quite. All the music is for Einaudi's own piano, played solo, except that there are some very subtle touches of cello, approaching full partnership in track 9, Dna. Nothing takes this out of the realm of what used to be called mood music, which means that most listeners will know whether they're going to like it or not. But it isn't copying anybody else.




Ludovico Einaudi - Una mattina FULL ALBUM



Kicking off with Seven Days Walking: Day One, the albums will be available digitally each month, before a box set of all seven is released in the Autumn. The project follows 2015 album Elements, his first ever Top 20 album on the Official Chart - see Einaudi's full Official Chart history here.


Einaudi favors ostinato patterns in the musical bass clef, often using strings of quarter notes to build a chord progression that his melodies then transcend. Una mattina, his 2004 album, contains plenty of examples; Nuvole bianche, a delicate, sweeping composition, is the most renowned. In other highlights, the album's title track (Una mattina) is a hopeful but serious masterpiece. And the even tempo and tight counterpoint of Ora make it feel like it was composed for a harpsichord. 041b061a72
